    Roger Federer won his 80th singles title, defeating David Ferrer in the first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 final to feature two players over the age of 30.
    Federer, 33, improved to a perfect 6-0 in Cincinnati finals and to a 16-0 FedEx ATP Head2Head record against the 32-year-old Ferrer.
    The Swiss snapped a four-match losing streak in Masters 1000 finals, including a runner-up finish last week in Toronto (l. to Tsonga), to claim his 22nd crown at this level.
    Federer won his third title (Dubai, Halle) from his eighth final this season. He joined Jimmy Connors (109) and Ivan Lendl (94) as players to clinch 80 or more titles in the Open Era.
    Ferrer had been attempting to win his second ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title and 22nd overall.
    Bob & Mike Bryan successfully defended their Cincinnati crown, winning their 99th team title in their 150th final.
    The victory gave the top-ranked team a record 30 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 trophies, including five at the Western & Southern Open (2003, '08, '10, '13).
    Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock had entered the final with a 14-0 team mark, having triumphed at Wimbledon and the Citi Open.


Federer: "I'm very happy about the week. Just overall it went from good to great. Just really pleased that I was able to back up a tough week last week already."

Looking ahead to US Open: "Especially now I come in with great confidence. I can really rest now, rather than having to work on stuff, so it's just about maintaining. That's also really good for the mind... I know my game is where I want it to be. It's about just keeping that level up right now."

Ferrer: "He was better, but I was close. I am happy with my game these two weeks. I [reached the] quarter-final in Toronto and final here playing well every day."

Bob Bryan: "It was amazing to walk out to a packed house today. It was an incredible atmosphere and once again the Cincy crowds have brought out the best in us. Mike and I were really sharp right from the first ball and are extremely excited about this victory."

Mike Bryan: "Hats off to Jack and Vasek on their impressive run this summer. It's great for doubles to have another marketable team competing for the biggest titles and we look forward to having more competitive battles against them in the future."
